  • Monday, February 13: White House Press Briefing by Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and Pentagon Press Secretary, John F. Kirby.

The president also instructed the intelligence community to take a broad look at the phenomenon of unidentified aerial objects. Indeed, President Biden conducted the first ever Daily Intelligence Briefing Session devoted to this phenomenon, back in June of 2021. He was briefed that this was not just an issue for the United States, but one for the rest of the world. And as I said, our friends and our partners are dealing with this as well.

We worked on a bipartisan basis to stand up an office at the Pentagon to study this, in partnership with the intelligence community, academic institutions and the private sector. These unidentified aerial phenomena have been reported for many years, without explanation or deep examination by the government. President Biden has changed all that. We are finally trying to understand them better.

It’s a bit rich to say that “President Biden has changed all that“. What about the work of Senator Gillibrand, Lue Elizondo, Chris Mellon et al? Many more have worked harder and longer!

Press Coverage

According to the BBC, the February 12 object was at 20,000ft (6,100m). Their report goes to to quote US Northern Command Commander General Glen VanHerck. When asked if they could be extraterrestrials, this response was, “I will let the intel community and the counterintelligence community figure that out,” adding, “I haven’t ruled out anything at this point.”

I’m not going to categorise them as balloons. We’re calling them objects for a reason.

What we are seeing is very, very small objects that produce a very, very low radar cross-section.

“…have any targets up here? We just had something go right over the top of us. I hate to say this but, it looked like a long cylindrical object that almost looked like a cruise missile type of thing moving really fast. It went right over the top of us.

President Ronald Reagan’s 1987 Speech

President Reagan made a statement about the potential for extraterrestrial life to unite humanity during a speech on September 21, 1987, at the United Nations General Assembly in New York. In the speech, Reagan was discussing the possibilities of cooperation between nations in the face of common threats, and he used the hypothetical scenario of an extraterrestrial threat as an example of how humanity could come together in the face of a common challenge.

“I occasionally think how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world.”

Aftermath & Analysis

After all the excitement and trending UFO related hashtags had died down a little it wasn’t long before some more level-headed analysis emerged and all kinds of questions were raised.

  • Is this another psyop designed by the MIC to control the UFO narrative?
  • Why would advanced technology, whatever its source, allow itself to be shot down so easily?
  • Why did the US military claim it was so difficult to find any wreckage?
